Together with the Universite Catholique de Louvain (UCL) and the Austrian Research Institute Joanneum Research of Graz, a new development contract has been awarded to AETHIS.
The goal of this activity is to provide Data Collection and Processing for the Alphasat TDP5 Ka/Q Band Propagation Data.
Alphasat is a geostationary satellite located at 25 deg E. There are presently 14 potential receiving stations foreseen for the measurement campaign.
The objectives of the scientific experiment is to derive first and second order statistics at 19.7 GHz and 39.4 GHz, to acquire depolarization measurements, sky noise temperature measurements and meteorological measurements coming from rain gauges, radar, radiometers, meteorological organisations, etc.
AETHIS' contribution is the data handling and processing scheduling, as well as the production of a web-based user interface to view the resulting Data Reports.
